Baker & Taylor
A latest irreverent road journal by the author of Get in the Van recounts his 2007 spoken word show tour through Iran, Syria, Lebanon, and Pakistan, during which he recorded unstinting observations on such topics as the assassination of Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, changes throughout the music industry, and his own life work. Original.

Perseus Publishing
2007 was a very busy year for Henry Rollins. He traveled to Iran, Syria, Lebanon, and Pakistan, where he was staying when Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto was assassinated. While traveling, Rollins performed numerous spoken word shows and worked on films, his IFC television show, and Harmony in My Head, his popular weekly radio show. In short, a quintessentially Rollins-ian year: sleepless, nonstop, and highly productive. A Preferred Blur contains stories written in the form of journal entries from Rollins’ travels throughout the year. As in his other travel-related books and journals, Rollins ? Detail magazine’s 1994 Man of the Year ? writes not only about his own life and work, but of music, current affairs, and the world around him with humor, insight, and brutal honesty.


Blackwell North Amer
A Preferred Blur picks up where 2006's A Dull Roar left off, chronicling the effects of a self-inflicted schedule designed to reduce sleep, over stimulate to the point of stupor and induce a case of nervous exhaustion. A marathoner's depression was the desired effect which was achieved on 12-31-07 when the book comes to an end with the two word sentiment that got the whole project started in the first place.
